Everyone On Mission
Over the past several months,
you have been exposed, through the “Being Visible”
interviews, to the DCC body living “on mission.” That
is, living intentionally to love people as Christ would,
and in that process, fulfilling the Great Commission
(Matthew 28:19-20) by building discipleship
relationships with those within each one’s circle of
influence. Ranging from college students to retirees,
these interviews have revealed, at least, one major
truth…..God will use you wherever He’s placed you to do
whatever He’s purposed for you.
As we begin a new year, it is our desire as a church
body to renew our corporate and individual commitments
to living a life of worship to God, and to invite others
to do the same. For that reason, the Outreach Commission
has chosen the theme, “Everyone on Mission” as the
emphasis for January. This month you will be challenged
to consider how you might live on mission with Him in
this next year. Whether He is calling you across the
room, across the street, or across the globe, you have
been given a mission field. Who is it? How will you
reach out to them? How will you be a part of the work
others are doing to reach out?
Visible Presence of Christ
Damascus Community Church
The Outreach Ministries of
Damascus Community Church exist to encourage and
enable those in the DCC body to use their gifts
and resources in calling people to faith in Jesus
Christ. We believe this is the mission Jesus
commissioned His Church to carry out (Matthew 28:19-20).
Our Mission Fields
begins in our own spheres of influence, and extends
to our community, nation, and to the farthest reaches
of the world (Acts 1:8). We believe God has
called us to invest our lives and resources to share
the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbors,
friends, family, co-workers, and then to people
in locations around the world. DCC has adopted
an Unreached People Group in Central Asia, with
a commitment to educate ourselves about this large
block of people, pray for Christ’s church among
them, and seek avenues of ministry to reach them
Our Mission Personnel
DCC supports missionaries serving
within the greater Portland metropolitan area, other
locations in the U.S., and in nations across the
globe. These workers serve through a number of different
missionary organizations and in a variety of ministries.
We pray for, support financially, visit, encourage
and care for these missionaries in various ways.
We also plan short term missionary trips, and help
to support short-term workers.
Our Mission Strategy
Prayer is a significant
part of our outreach ministry, and is incorporated
in regular and special meetings devoted to outreach.
We publish and distribute a prayer calendar highlighting
our ministries each month. We believe our
approach in calling people to faith in Jesus Christ
must be Biblically sound, demographically appropriate,
and culturally sensitive. The strategy includes
our own personal witness, outreach events, training
(discipleship), and encouragement, and the support
of those involved in these activities around the
prayer calendar for the
missionaries and other ministries is published and
Our Mission Partnerships
Realizing that like-minded
organizations effectively serve in our community
and around the world, DCC shares in the support
of several para-church ministries and mission agencies.
